Pink talks to The Advocate about her gay fans/friends:
"They’ve been the most loyal part of what I do. They’ve been my most loyal friends, to be honest. I’ve had a lot of my gay boys around, but my gay girls are my rootstalk. They’re my honesty in an ocean of bullshit. I should be gay by the way that I look and the way that I am. I just happen to not be. But it just makes perfect and complete sense."
The (formerly) working-class girl from Doylestown, Pennsylvania, goes on to discuss the state of the economy in this turbulent election year:
"I just know that half of my family is pissed off, and we’re all working-class people. My mom is a nurse, and my dad was an insurance salesman, and my brother works for pennies for the military, and some of my family is unemployed. People are like, ‘You live in a fucking bubble, you live in Hollywood.’ And I’m like, ‘Yeah, I’ve got money now.'"
I still remember when, back in my teen-mag days, Pink first arrived on the scene. Her record label scolded us: "You're not embracing Pink." So we tried harder, but she was never a hot teen star, she was just a hot star-star, a radio favorite, an artist. All better things to be. Never dreamed a girl whose entire gimmick seemed to be pink hair would last so long and have so much in her.
Via Billboard: Quirkiest-seeming charts of all time have to be the Mainstream Top 40 song chart for 1992-2012 and its corresponding ranking of the top Mainstream Top 40 artists of the past 20 years. Apparently, the ranking is weighted in order to "ensure equitable representation," but some things that jump right out as mind-blowing:
Rihanna—the #1 artist of the past 20 years in this field—has no songs in the Top 10, and Kelly Clarkson is the only solo female with a song in the Top 10 ("Since U Been Gone").
In spite of Clarkson being the only female with a song in the Top 10, the Top 40 artists of the era are headed up by an entirely female Top 6
Madonna is at #10 in spite of radio's chilly feelings toward her during that era (notable exceptions including "Take a Bow" and "Music")
Janet Jackson is higher than Madonna
Lady Gaga, with only a few years under her belt, is just outside the Top 10
Pink is the #2 artist for this era
Britney Spears is #3 with only one song in the Top 40
I used to be obsessed with charts. I guess by "used to be" I mean "still am" whenever the opportunity arises!
Pink continues to grow as an artist and performer with her new CD The Truth About Love, no? Check out her rockin' performance of "Slut Like You" live from L.A.
I probably blew it by not paying more attention to Pink over the years, but I guess she felt like one of the subjects of the magazine I worked for more than a potential new fave artist for me personally. The magazine was how I first met her—and I wasn't wild about her personality. She was a total brat at a radio beach blast I covered about 10 years ago (she was NOT into an impromptu hello with the press), though was far nicer at a photo shoot I did with her a few months after that, where I got a great picture with her, managing to smile alongside her even though she'd delayed the proceedings forever by demanding we bring in someone to do her nails first.
But her song and video "Blow Me (One Last Kiss)" are pretty great, and she's consistently had interesting, fun, genderfucked, feminist, well-written, aggressively performed material for a long-ass time, hasn't she?
